AERD Awareness Day 9-26-18: Updates
The Bonfire t-shirt fundraiser ended on September 9th and we thrilled to announce that we raised $1,624.16 for AERD research! On September 26th, please share your awareness day t-shirt photos on social media #AERDawareness.
We still have many exciting #AERDawareness activities coming up!
On September 26th, we will launch a Go Fund Me campaign to raise $20,000 for AERD research. All proceeds from both the Bonfire fundraiser and the Go Fund Me will be donated to three of the groups dedicated to researching AERD – The Brigham & Women’s AERD Center, Scripps Clinic, and the Penn Medicine AERD Center.
On September 26th, we will also be releasing a printable AERD Guide for Doctors written by Dr. Laidlaw of the Brigham & Women’s AERD Center and Dr. White of Scripps Clinic. Allergy & Asthma Network will be releasing an AERD toolkit on their website. We have had media interest in #AERDawareness and already have some interviews planned.
Please stay tuned for more updates and follow Samter’s Society on all our social media pages to help spread the word on 9/26. If you aren’t already, please find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We are working on graphics, posters, and fact sheets to share on AERD Awareness day and we need your help to spread the word!
